It’s never been enough for me, a band just producing excellent music; there needs to be more for them to make it onto my ‘favourites’ list.
In the case of Bandaid Brigade, the first criteria is easily fulfilled. Just listen to their latest offering, ‘Break the Grid,’ and their debut track, ‘Travel Light,’ (both below.)
But why are they my new favourite band?
Their debut album is not due until the turn of the New Year, and they certainly haven’t played here in Glasgow.
I’ll tell you why – it’s precisely because I can’t put my finger on what they offer! There’s an air of mystery about them, but a real punk attitude, harking back to the fun punk of the early 2000s. The music seems based on punk, but then isn’t what you’d call ‘punk.’
Their music and attitude makes me smile. They make me wanna dance … though you really don’t wanna see that.
Heck! Who cares what label is put on Bandaid Brigade. They have fun – we have fun. Everyone’s a winner.
